When you think of a Take That tour you think of big production, huge songs and even bigger crowds of screaming fans. What I didn’t expect to find was a family of amazing people behind the scenes, the best of the best, who pull this whole experience together.
I was given AAA access to the band and crew for the duration of the tour and my what a treat it turned out to be. It all started for me in a large rehearsal space with zero clue about what to expect. By show time I had learnt ever angle, song beat, lighting cue and production moment inside out and back again. I’d run the full length of arenas and like a die hard fan i’d submerged myself into the Take That world to bring this body of work together. Choreographed by Kim Gavin, I felt a huge weight of expectation from everyone involved to bring the shows epic and spectacular journey into still form. There are so many ‘moments’ to witness it’s hard to choose a standout. It’s almost unfair to judge other shows against this one. For me it was a stand out amongst anything i’d ever been a part of.
What follows is a cross section of seen and never seen images of my time with the production.
